I could not be more proud of Celeste, Meredith and Elronn (all co-hosts of our Hypnosis, Etc. Program). They represented the Hypnosis, Etc. program here on and all 5-PATHers around the world wonderfully, at the Solid Gold Weekend this past weekend.

After their very professional performance this weekend, I know that they have launched their careers to a higher level. And as they reach these higher levels in the profession, they will continue to represent all of the values that we hypno–1%ers hold so close to our hearts.

I also want to congratulate EVERY one of you who managed to make it out to the Solid Gold Weekend. This showing of the Hypnosis, Etc. program viewers and 5–PATHers shows the NGH that we are a positive movement in the profession.

Dr. Damon, NGH President, told me personally how impressed he was with all the 5–PATHers who showed up. You were professional, knowledgeable and projected a high commitment to professionalism.

Other Topics Included:

  • Working with Heartbreak Successfully – Elronn Ferguson

  • Trouble Shooting Weight Loss – Celeste Hackett

  • Overcoming Client Resistance In & Out of Hypnosis – Meredith Locher

  • Constant Cash Flow Model for Hypnosis Business Success – Cal Banyan

PLUS, everyone was impressed with our former and current co-hosts, Celeste Hackett, Meredith Locher and Elronn Ferguson. The NGH was so impressed that we are all invited to speak at the upcoming NGH Convention in August.

I also want to thank Dr. Damon and the entire NGH staff for making this event the power-house it is, and for letting me be a speaker as well as having the honor of wrapping up the event on Sunday afternoon.

I hope you will share the good news about our website here at and leave us a comment below.

    Glad to hear your views on this DEAD series. Personally, I do not like nor do I use the word “suggestibility” as in becoming hyper suggestible or some other derivative. My prejudice is that there are too many negative connotations to being “Suggestible” such as gullible and open to being taken advantage of. In my pre-talk I talk about becoming hyper-receptive to positive suggestions.

    I know several hypnotists that use the suggestibility tests and the best they can do if someone “fails” the test is to say, “you see, YOU are in control, now I want you to ….” Hum, what’s wrong with that picture? I believe that you can determine well enough how a person will accept suggestions simply by listening to them in the initial interview.

    Hello Jim – Thanks for your comment.

    We also use the wise approach of teaching that IF you do use, or talk about suggestibility tests then you should NEVER call them “suggestibility tests” when speaking to a client, or group. Rather we call the tests of concentration, or imagination, or similar descriptors that match the test.

    Since I like to define hypnosis and a state of “heightened suggestibility” I feel quite comfortable with your wording of “hyper suggestible”.

    Keep up the gr8 work you are doing and keep leaving comments.
